Heat up summer; Take 3.

Byline: Demelza de Durca

SLIP into something more comfortable this summer - a sexy spaghetti strap number.

As seen on the runway at Calvin Klein's SS1, the slip dress is back.

And while donning a Kate Moss-circa-1996 style would be ideal, this season's selection is just as classic, showcasing twists on the old favourite through longer lengths, different shades and boxier cuts.

The chicest way to wear the lingerie-inspired slip dress is to keep the style loose - spaghetti straps and bias cuts are tricky enough to handle without throwing bunched-up silk into the mix.

Whether you're hitting the high-street or doing afterdinner drinks, it's the ultimate in understated glamour.
